[Translate to English:] A boy rides a bicycle in front of the Great Mosque of Djenné, designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1988 along with the old town of Djenné, in the central region of Mali.

Se­ven coun­tries, in­clu­ding Ma­li, just vo­ted at the UN a­gainst con­dem­ning Rus­sia's war of ag­gres­sion. The govern­ment's re­la­tion­ship with Rus­sia is close. Mean­while, even Wagner mer­cen­aries are oper­ating in the coun­try. The UN has been lead­ing the MINUSMA peace­keep­ing mis­sion here since 2013. France with­drew its troops from Mali in 2022, and Ger­many is fol­low­ing suit. Is Mali show­ing signs of a rup­ture in the glo­bal com­mun­i­ty? What fu­ture do UN peace­keep­ing mis­sions have? The par­ti­ci­pants of the taz-lab pan­el dis­cus­sion there­fore talk about Mali, the UN and the fu­ture of in­ter­na­tion­al co­op­er­a­tion.
